1366’s mission is to make the cost of solar power competitive with coal power.
Our approach is simple. We take a proven, safe, abundant material –silicon– and develop practical manufacturing solutions that increase efficiency and dramatically cut cost.

Our manufacturing solutions are compatible with existing supply chain processes, delivering a large impact without the complexity.

1366 has a team of veteran scientists, engineers and entrepreneurs, including MIT professor and photovoltaic industry expert Dr. Emanuel Sachs, with extensive experience in process and machine design.

The initial technology for 1366 was developed by our team at MIT and is now being commercialized.

The science is understood. The material is abundant. The products work.
All that is left is to build the largest manufacturing industry in the history of mankind. This is what we intend to do.

1366 is a VantagePoint cleantech portfolio company.
